Hitting a Home Run for Hearing!
Each year 12,000 babies in the US are born with hearing loss. A â€śbionic earâ€ť or cochlear implant (CI) would allow many join the hearing world. Jacob Landis, a CI recipient, is riding to all 30 baseball stadiums to raise money for those who could benefit from a CI but cannot afford one.
